Powerline, comparing Breitbart to Buckley!:

With the hounds baying, Andrew deserves the support of conservatives in his struggle with the Democrat-Media complex.

Yes, they're that insane. Limbaugh goes after Shep Smith for using basic journalistic ethics, and repeats the Big Race-Baiting Lie:

“This regime is tribalizing this country. They are dividing this country. It's not just enough to say that they are dividing us. They are tribalizing this country. We aren't Americans anymore. We're all members of different racial tribes, and we are to be pitted against each other: Black Americans, White Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans. We're all being divided up racially, by tribes.”

The pure projection is staggering. Breitbart won't apologize and the amoral pageview machine Politico puffs him up. I suspect the small, sudden moment of some ethics and honesty on the right scared the bullies.
